critical decision. that is what it is all about. it is very simple. there has been a big smokescreen. there has been numerous red herring thrown out in order to try to confuse the public about this measure. it is much more simple than all of those allegations pretend. the big issue for all of us is how do we find the parks. that is the big question we keep getting asked. the people of san francisco have repeatedly voted money for the parks. they have never turned down the park's bond. by 2/3 votes they have provided $170 million. they have extended the open space. if this policy continues within the department, there are so many angry people in the city that will no longer vote to support our parks. people are angry, saying we have done all we can to support our parks but are having them taken away, having access taken away. if you really want to fund the parks, adopt this ordinance and go to the people for support for our parks. if you do not, the people are no longer going to support the parks. supervisor avalos: thank you. i have a few more cards to read. jude lang, nancy wuerful,
black people. that big fight, brown versus the board of education so all the black kids can get an education. [inaudible] the books have pages missing, and they all have things written inside of them. at the main library, we have a demonstration going on. [inaudible] how come we cannot use that facility? they cannot even get a good job and fair pay. men, they come up missing. rape -- they do not want to talk about that, but if it is a white woman, it is on the news, on the radio, on television. i do not want to die like that. so i'm going to stay black and die. if i could do one thing -- >> i told you, you need to move on. do i need to get the police?" >> sir, i picked -- "sir, i paid my fare. it is my constitutional right." the driver gets off the bus. police officers come. they are at the back door. "i had trouble with this girl before." "the two of you need to get up. you know it is against the law." open " i paid my fair -- "i paid my fare. if i move now, i will get sick. i'm pregnant." there is a volunteer. i think he was sensing there was going to be trouble or something.
to the next one. the racial change, we have the world distribution. we have a big variation, and we can see that the second district is 80%. green is the largest share of asians. thank you. what is below the horizontal line, this is the net loss for a particular district. the color red is african- americans, with a loss of about 12,000 people in the last decade. concentrated in districts 5 and districts stand, where we have the asians growth. and district 6 and 10 and 11. latinos, the consensus -- you can indicate if you are of any race. this shows if people indicated that they were latino. district 6 have the largest growth. the strychnine had a loss of their population, compensated -- district 9 had a loss of their population. they pretty much speak for themselves all the labels may not be readable. this was 48%, with the african- americans in the southeast. and also in the western addition, the number sides are dropping. asians in the western part, and chinatown, and also increasingly in district 10. what is next? the latinos in these neighborhoods, i think the highest is in district 9 w
in hayward on may 27. one of big driving forces behind this effort is le's family and especially her brother who refuses to give up hope. the u.c. berkeley student has dedicated his summer break to finding his sister. when he does, take a rare break. he feels he a letting her down. >> i feel horrible. i feel like i've wasted but i know i needed this to stay sane. >> his efforts have helped raise $100,000 in reward money, an amount that surprised him. >> i've never even used $100,000 as an incentive before but i hope it appeals to anybody. >> professional searchers of the klass foundation. they agreed to take on this case in part because of the le's family commitment. they hope more volunteers will join the effort. >> they can definitely make a difference. volunteers are needed. this is an opportunity to give back to this family. >> she is all the world to me. having to live without her has been a struggle, it's been almost more than i can bear. >> this is the sixth search. it's the smallest group yet. the family members say they are disappointed but they would like to see more people helping
with all of the impacts of a hospital decide they want -- they want a big hospital and want to have to take care of everything else. i am very careful to know how each supervisor feels about the impact on the project. i would like cpmc to be successful because they do not have a lot of time. we would do the best we can and review every aspect of this so that they have the best chance of success. >> the issue of the state budgets have affected many local businesses. is there any way that the city could help more nonprofits? >> that is why i am proposing a set sales tax. the state did make some severe cuts. we do not know when those cuts will start that impacting the nonprofits. as you know, through our city budget, if you ask many of the nonprofits, they're pretty happy. we restored a lot of the original cuts. their services reflect the values that i hold, board of supervisors hold. now the state is making cuts, some in the same places that we've restored. we cannot promise to back fill all of those cuts. we can promise to go through the same process and asked what are the critical services
know who you can call to get a cab. i am a big believer in pedestrian bicycling as options to get around town. many cities in the world have far more people working or on bicycles into blocking or on bicycles. they are pleasant most of transit and are efficient. -- many cities in the world have far more people walking or on bicycles. they are pleasant and efficient forms of transportation. that will take cars off the road and make it easier for those who drive. if we want to create a world- class transportation system, we have to make a commitment to each of these modes of transit to allow us to move where we need to go. >> is it safe for pedestrians on the streets? >> it is not. in recent years, we have had too many pedestrian accidents. there are estimates it costs our cities several hundred millions a year because of traffic accidents, injuries, and fatalities. i am asking one of our transit agencies to study where we're spending our dollars around the district and whether we invested more money would help to reduce our overall costs that come when a pedestrian is hit by a car.
. that flexibility is called the flow -- float in our charter, and that is a big distinction with the alternative proposal that is still being marketed by mr. adachi. it is important for you to know that. that distinction called vested rights. many cities across the country -- when they have not considered the employees' pension has a vested right, they get into legal trouble very quickly. that is why you see litigation around the country sponsored by employee groups who have never been consulted with, being demanded that they pay more into the pension, but there is no consideration of their vested rights. that concept is embedded in our measure were in good and bad times, we share, so they get something out of this reform. because they get something out of it, they are vested in it. the unions continue to view, as i do, that the alternative proposal being sponsored by mr. adachi does not consider vested rights and therefore will be litigated. in that litigation, there is a great chance in my opinion that the proposal will lose. i am not the city attorney, but if you ask the city attorney, as we
. thanks! you noticed! you know these clothes are too big now, so i'm donating them. nogoing back the again. good for you! how'd you do i eating right, whole grain. whole grain? whole grain. [ female announcer ] people who choose more whole grain tend to weigh less than those who don't... multigrain cheerios has five whole grains and 110 lightly sweetened calories per serving... more grains. less you! multigrain cheerios. >>> happy friday. 4:42, looking out from roof cam at abc7 studios. beautiful shot this morning, you got the high-rises and the ferry building. with we've got a warming trend on the way. if you like summertime, mike nicco is the man to talk to. >>> more news. a federal investigation is getting underway at boston logan airport. passengers were shaken up after an airplane clipped a wing. nobody was hurt but they are trying to figure out how it happened. lisa stark has the latest. >> it was a clear evening still light out when the larger plane smacked into the smaller jet. bottom planes were damaged. wing tip as sliced and the tail badly mangled. >> i was looking out the windo
. >> this guy says the petition is all about making the big shots pay. >> big city officials are all like... aha. we've got a free ride you know? >> okay. >> it makes it fair for all of us. >> and nathan is representing unions. >> you can't say this is about night time parking meters when it's about pensions. >> he says the 72,000 signatures gathered should be thrown out. >> our lawyers are looking into it now. >> he says the measure is spelled out right on the petition. >> every petition has what is called a sum marie prepared by the city. pechl read petition before signing it and he adds there were 300 people collecting signatures over tloo months. >> if opponents, you know have any evidence that a person has signed a petition under false pretenses they should come forward witness. i haven't seen any. >> still it's ironic that he has video rolled out, it would be an under cover camera watching -- watching his petition gathers in a web of lie autos well we made it clear to all of the signature gatherers to be accurate. now... is there could be an explanation as to every detail? no that. is why
for one small site to exist, right? our strategy in the old days was to align ourselves with a big media company -- cbs. we align ourselves with yahoo! in some way and with ail -- aol in another way. you need the types of connections with more established or at least larger players in order to survive. the other reason is that the proliferation of sites has caused a change in the way people get their news. no longer do they just go to what we call destination sites, which was essentially a newspaper online. they are getting their news on facebook and google and bing and search engines. to be out there in that news sphere, you have to have different ways of attacking a and having connections and distribution arrangements. >> i would like to add that proliferation of new sites creates more demand for content, which creates more opportunity for professional writers. before you think about going into news as a business as an independent publisher, you have to think about what the need is, if there is a need in that particular space for another site, and then how you distinguish yourself and
of respect for my colleagues, i do think it is a big mistake. i think how we address our homeless population and the services that we provide has been a problem for san francisco for a long time. care not cash has been a success by most objective measures. and i think to risk dismantling that would be a huge mistake here. i appreciate my colleagues and respect them but think it is a move in the wrong direction. the real intrigue is whether or not there is enough political pressure taken off the bat. >> and i just wanted to state that i do appreciate everyone's engagement on this issue. it wasn't the intent of our was to dismantle care not cash. we also see the success of this program. the big question is the equity amongst our homeless individuals and how we give the preferences. but we do appreciate it. at the time we will open it up for public comment. i have cards in front of me. we give two minutes. i will call the first 10 speakers. and then if you can please line it up closely to that order. >> if there r individuals that have the same time restriction please use it and step up. two mi
it at scale, and that has been the big challenge. >> can you elaborate on that? what does that mean exactly? >> we would not exist if there was not a feeling that a lot of these communities do not have the experience online of finding the information that is most relevant to them. there are a lot of great weekly newspapers. there are a lot of bulletin boards, facebook woods, you name it. there is a lot of media focused at local, but not every community has it, and even the ones that do often are not getting the kind of service that i think they used to historical because of downsizing and regional newspapers not serving those communities the way they used to. so you will have the council meeting not really being covered. we have had numerous examples where board meetings, council meetings, things that those members got used to not being covered. suddenly, they were seeing the week after week and seeing that we were there to stay. >> in the audience, do you feel like you're communities are being covered well? do you know what is going on in your back yard? do you feel like your stories being
injuries. the big rig's driver was not hurt. authorities are trying to figure out if it was the shuttle driver who ran a red light causing that accident. >>> at this hour another round of white house meetings is under way to try to resolve the debt ceiling dispute. there's new word in just the past hour of a possible bipartisan compromise in the works. that comes after a testy exchange between the president and a republican the last night. >> we have been in this fight together. any suggestion that the role that eric has played in these meetings has been anything less than helpful is wrong. >> reporter: house speaker john boehner rushed to defend eric canter. canter pushed the president so much that the president called out, eric don't call my bluff. >> this is for laws that are due for preexisting obligations such as social security, like the troops we have on the field. like our border security agents, our fbi agents. >> tonight there are reports that the democratic and republican leaders are working on a compromise. it would give the president more authority to raise the debt ceiling
here just off of highway 24 are hoping for that big arrest. the neighborhood is monitored by a private security company and folks we talked to are very concerned. >> just unusual. it's one of those odd occurrences that hopefully they'll be able to explain soon. >> there's a lot going on in oakland. there's a concern that the police department is lacking funding. and so this is -- i don't think this has anything to do with that. i think it's a true anomaly. >> reporter: again, police need your help. tips are needed. if you have any information, contact the oakland police department. reporting live in oakland, i'm cheryl hurd, nbc bay area news. >> thank you. >>> put a leash on pg&e or we'll see you in court, that's the message to state regulators. a letter of intent was sent demanding tighter scrutiny of pipelines to prevent another explosion. pg&e operated the san bruno transmission line. that notice sent today is the first step in a potential lawsuit that would force california and the feds to enforce pipeline safety laws. >>> she's tired of running from the law. a woman charged with
as quickly as possible. >> anne, the intention is good. but are people worried about "big brother" in the neighborhood? >> reporter: there is always that concern and you hear that pop when we talk about security cameras being installed in public places but in this case, a lot of the merchants around here are really feeling relieved. in fact, they begged police to do more for. they are just looking for anything to help. we have been talking about the police cutbacks and you just can't have officers on every corner. so if something like this might be able to deter crime they are all for it. >> hopefully it will help. anne makovec in oakland, thank you. >>> a bad crash from a car plowing into a house in san francisco last night. it involved three cars and a motorcycle at clayton street and twin peaks boulevard. one of the cars landed upside- down on top of another one. there is at least one critical injury. building inspectors are checking the integrity of the house. >>> pg&e is being hit with more lawsuits for last september's deadly pipeline explosion in san bruno. 81 more families
